Kayany Foundation

Kayany Foundation is a Lebanese non-governmental organization founded in 2013 in response to the Syrian crisis. Kayany operates educational programs for Syrian refugee children and youth residing in the informal tented settlements (ITSs). In partnership with the Center for Civic Engagement and Community Service at AUB, the foundation established GHATA portable schools in the Beqaa valley.  With this effective and sustainable school design, Kayany took a leading role in bringing Education to “OUT OF SCHOOL” refugees. Its projects and programs have been expanding ever since.
